write the balanced chemical equation for reaction the following chemical reaction
ozone gas, O3 , reacts with 3,3,4,4,5,5-hexamethyl-1-hexyne, H-CßC-C(CH3)2-C(CH3)2-C(CH3)2-CH3 to produce carbon dioxide gas, CO2 , and water gas , H2O .
When balancing the equation , use the molecular formula of the organic compound
I am not sure how to write the initial equation:
O3 + ?? --> CO2 + H20
For the ?? in your equation, substitute the formula you have in the problem. Then it's just a matter of balancing it.
